White Angel – The End of Marinka

Directing: Arndt Ginzel


Marinka, a town in the Donetsk region, once had 10,000 inhabitants. When Russia invaded Ukraine, almost everyone had to flee. Policeman Vasyl Pipa and a team of volunteers try to evacuate people who have been hiding in dark, damp basements for weeks, bag the dead, provide first aid to the injured, and treat shrapnel wounds. They travel in an ordinary van, which the locals soon nickname the White Angel. On a small camera attached to his helmet, Vasyl captures the dramatic events in eastern Ukraine as they happen. In this way, he manages to film an authentic testimony of how Russia is attempting to erase Marinka from the face of the earth.
